Case Abstract

As an evolution from the previous web initiative (ciudadano.es), Red 060 is a multichannel initiative consisting in a website (www.060.es), a network of offices (more than 1.600 in March 2009), and a telephone number.

The website www.060.es is the national portal for citizens and enterprises of Spain. A large number of online services is available regardless of the Public Administration responsible for it, so a citizen can apply for online services without having to know previously if it is from a local, regional or national Administration.

The 060 offices provide local, regional or national Administration services from a catalogue reflecting the agreements signed between the different Administrations in each spanish region, and are normally located in Town Councils, who provide the service.

The phone number 060 offers a 24h voice portal about common procedures and personalized information from 9 to 21 h Monday to Friday and from 9 to 14 h on Saturdays.

Impact, innovation and results


Use of the different channels is extensive and satisfactory, even although the 060 phone has clearly saturation on peak hours.

Website was visited by more than 3.000.000 users in 2008, and hosts access to more than 1.200 online-services of different administrations.

060 phone number attended almost 2.000.000 calls in 2008, more than 50% of them were attendend by the voice portal.

No statistics are held from the 060 offices, since this is a distributed service. However, a statistical track of the service will be implemented in a near future.

The citizens appreciate the non-bureaucrat format and approach of the initiative, although the services provided have not been redesigned to make them more friendly.

The 060 initiative has been promoted by three different communication campaings, and this has lead to an extensive knowledge of the 060 image, although some more consolidation on what the network is for is wished.

Lessons learnt

- Need of dedicated channel responsibles in order to promote coordination to get the most from the multichannel strategy

- Cross-selling: each channel should provide accurate information and promote (when needed) access to the other channels in order to let the citizen know about the different channels.

- Demanding interchange of information, in order to keep the network resources accurate and up-to-date, mainly because web provide services change rapidly and without notice.
